Updated Maruti Ignis Has Been Launched In Nepal

Updated Maruti Ignis has been launched in Nepal for Rs. 32 lakh. The car is available with roof rails for the Zeta and Alpha variants while all the variants are now available with safety additions like the reverse parking sensors, co-driver seat belt reminder, and high-speed alert system and dual airbags. Some other safety features include ABS with EBD, ISOFIX child seat mounts and seat belt pre-tensioners. Maruti has kept the four variants alive for the entry-level Nexa model, offering AMT gearbox on the Delta, Zeta, and Alpha for ease of driving in the tough, traffic-stuffed city conditions.

The top-spec model with AMT gearbox is available for 32 lakh, bringing a huge gap between the pricing of Maruti Suzuki WagonR and Ignis. The 1.2L, four-cylinder petrol motor on the car is good for 83 HP at 6000 rpm and 113 Nm at 4200 rpm. The standard gearbox stays 5-speed manual on all four variants. The 2435mm of compact wheelbase and 3700mm of overall length makes sure that quick city turns never become a reason of stress for the driver. Ignis can be bought in six single and three dual tone shades, rivalling none other than Mahindra KUV100 in its segment.

Introducing the car, R S Kalsi, Senior Executive Director, Marketing and Sales, Maruti Suzuki, said, “Ignis has established itself as a complete package for those who seek the unconventional. Taking passenger safety to next level, we have loaded IGNIS with more safety features. These will be offered as standard across all variants. To enhance the design of IGNIS and give it a strong road presence, new roof rails are offered in Zeta and Alpha variants. We are confident that the updated version of IGNIS will be even more attractive for the premium urban car user.”
